Brady K. Krueger

July 28, 2017

Brady K. Krueger 65, died Friday, July 28, 2017 at his Newton residence. He was born May 15, 1952 in Newton, Kansas to Dean and Alvena (Bauer) Krueger. On February 26, 1984 he married Sheryl Hodges in Newton and she survives of the home.


He was a 1970 graduate of Newton High School and earned a business degree at Wichita State University. Brady also held his Charter Property Casualty Underwriter credentials.


He was the owner agent with Sheryl for Krueger Insurance Management, StorageMaxx and Hertz Rental Cars all of Newton. He selflessly devoted his time and talent alongside his wife building the business and serving the people of Newton, Harvey County and Kansas.  He was a member of several service organizations in Newton including Kiwanis, Newton Chamber of Commerce, Newton Citizens Police Academy, Leadership Newton and the former Newton Jaycees.


Brady could be found most evenings cooking dinner on his outdoor grill.  He enjoyed sports, especially baseball, (Go Royals) swimming and bowling.  He also liked to ride his bike around town.  Brady had a love of photography and enjoyed taking photos of nature and landscapes and especially sunrises and sunsets.


When you went to Brady and Sheryl’s home you would often hear his love of music.  The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac or Alabama playing throughout the house. He also had a love of Disney and enjoyed many trips to the magic kingdom.  In fact his favorite dog was named “Mickey”. Their home was their retreat where they relaxed and enjoyed yard work and landscaping and would be found at 6:30 watching Wheel of Fortune.


In his younger years Brady was a boy scout and served as a den leader for his son’s boyscout troop.  Family was important to Brady and he took pride in being a good dad and loving husband and friend to many. He was a confident mentor and freely shared his time, talent and treasure with many.  He made all those around him feel special and loved. He will be greatly missed by his loving family, co-workers and many friends.


Brady leaves as his legacy, his devotion and love for his family. He is survived by his wife Sheryl of Newton, Kansas and son Maxx and his wife Lauren of Liberty, Missouri.
